A New York estate for sale at $13.2 million is the home of Fran and Barry Weissler, the Tony Award-winning Broadway producers who brought Chicago, Waitress, Pippin and Finding Neverland to the stage.

Ms. Weissler once said of her home that “it’s the house that Chicago built” — indeed the producers can be credited with making the show a sensation, reviving a less successful 1970’s production. It’s now the second longest running show in Broadway history after The Phantom of the Opera.

Presenting in a style reminiscent of a French chateau with its roof lines and multiple chimneys, the large estate has an ideal layout for entertaining and goes the extra mile outside where the landscape design will entertain children and adults alike with its maze, sculptures and hiking possibilities in the adjoining nature preserve.
